This chiffon F&F Polka Dot Blouse ticks off the summer monochrome trend with its white polka dot print and black background. The sheer blouse is a great transitional piece for ‘in between season’ style; we’d tuck it into a leather skater skirt and wedge shoe boots for work or wear open over a cami with denim shorts and Western ankle boots for an off-duty summer look.

***This competition is now closed and our winners names are below. Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who took part!***Recently we’ve been getting ready for our amazing new season arrivals to mark the start of Spring.
The weather seems a little grey still but I think our wardrobes are a good place to start to get us in the mood, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I say that it may take a little more than a shorter sleeve, lighter colour palette and a less red/more pink lippy to make me feel like we’ve officially entered Spring.

Ahh spring, we’ve missed you!
I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s welcomed the slightly warmer weather we’ve enjoyed over the last week or so. However, despite a colleague declaring on Friday that it was ‘weather for sandals!!’, I don’t think we’re quite at that stage yet. But fingers crossed. With that in mind, today’s Wednesday Want is the perfect pair of transitional shoes – bright and colourful with a nod to spring in their floral trim, but still with covered toes and in a versatile denim finish which won’t look totally out of place if the skies grey over in the afternoon.
What’s your solution to the transitional footwear dilemma? Do you have a Wednesday Want? What’s on your wishlist for spring? As always, we love to hear your comments here, on twitter and on facebook.
Ahh, the gorgeous Oriental Print Dress from our Limited Edition Collection.
Limited Edition Oriental Floral Dress: £35
I could tell you all about why I love this week’s Wednesday Want, but I thought that this today I’d take a back seat and share some of our real customers’ comments, because they tell you all you need to know!
‘I got this dress to wear in the evening on holiday in the summer and it is very flattering, suits a curvy shape and very slimming. It could also be dressed up a bit more and worn to a wedding or special occasion. I love F and F dresses; they are good value for money and suit my shape.’
‘…suits most any occasion…’
‘This dress has a nice feel to the fabric, it is well made and of good quality. It fits perfectly in all places and flatters me. I cannot wait to wear it.’
‘I bought the dress for my holidays… liked the cut of the dress, and fabric did not feel cheap.’
‘Great fit…Makes you feel special.’
‘I bought this dress for my son’s graduation ceremony. I felt very chic!’
So there you have it readers, straight from the
horse’s real customer’s mouth. Why not treat yourself? As always, let us know if you’ve got a Wednesday Want.
